Vintage china tableware has been discovered in F. Dharanboodhoo.

Director of Dharanboodhoo Council, Abdul Hameed Adam reports five pieces of classic china were found this Wednesday morning from the volley courts at the island’s sports complex.

The five pieces – five plates and three bowls – were found buried together.

Abdul Hameed Adam reports the area where the china was found was last inhabited at least 80 years ago. And used to be the location of the house – Ganduvaruge.

The china was discovered by Haleema Ahmed, a security officer at Dharanboodhoo Council, and daughter of Ahmed Mohamed (Dhigugey Ahmed) – owner of Ganduvaruge.

The discovery was made while the area was being cleared of reeds.

Some of the china was chipped.

Multiple ancient artefacts have been discovered buried in Dharanboodhoo, including some from the grounds of the island’s school.
